Is it possible to beat the main story of GTA V with never having the character you are currently playing as kill someone?

    Are you a sadist?! This sounds SO INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT! Why put yourself through such torture?? :-D – Dom Sep 29 '13 at 18:17

    @Dom "Why did you want to climb Mount Everest?" This question was asked of George Leigh Mallory, who was with both expeditions toward the summit of the world’s highest mountain, in 1921 and 1922, and who is now in New York. He plans to go again in 1924, and he gave as the reason for persisting in these repeated attempts to reach the top, "Because it’s there." – Elpezmuerto Sep 29 '13 at 18:19

    do you mean "without killing anyone"? Because even non-lethal weapons can be used to kill people so the answer may vary depending on what exactly you mean. – Geeo Sep 29 '13 at 19:44

    @Dom Sadists inflict pain on others. People who enjoy pain are masochists. /pedant. – LessPop_MoreFizz Sep 29 '13 at 20:05

    I'd like to add here that knocking people out is equivalent to killing them in GTA 5. If you ever do the bounty hunter missions with Trevor, knocking the target out will make it impossible to bring him back alive, meaning Maude won't pay you. – Nolonar Sep 29 '13 at 21:18

No, it's not possible.

Sorry about that.

There are missions in the main story where there is no alternative to killing people. Listing them all would be futile, but an example as Michael in the By the Book mission.

    You may want to explain why it's not possible. – Nolonar Sep 29 '13 at 19:05

    Because it is not possible. There are many missions that require you to shoot people without a non-lethal alternative. The AI for your "companions" when you have them won't perform the actions required to advance. – TZHX Sep 29 '13 at 19:38

No, it's not possible. Some missions that include the death of a person is:

  • Prologue - killing security guard
  • Carbine Rifles
  • Hotel Assassination
  • Fresh Meat
  • Lamar Down

These are just to name a few. Everything mission at least has to have someone killed. In others there are alternatives.
